Italian contractor Webuild has handed over six stations on Line 4 of the Milan Metro (M4). The 5.4km section links the stations of Linate Airport and Dateo in the east of the city.
This project is part of a 15km line that will have 21 stations running from the airport through the historic centre to San Cristoforo station in the west. It can carry 24,000 people an hour with a maximum journey time of 30 minutes.
The project was commissioned by the City of Milan and built by the M4 concessionaire company, which is in charge of design, construction and management of the completed asset. The company’s private investors are led by Webuild.
Pietro Salini, Webuild’s chief executive, said: “I am very happy to be in Milan today to deliver to the city’s residents this new metro line: the first part of the M4 and the park that we built along Viale Argonne.
“This is the result of the expertise and commitment of all the women and men who have worked to create this infrastructure during a particularly difficult moment, what with the increase in raw materials prices, Covid-19 and the war.”
